Fort Dunlop is the original tyre factory and head office of Dunlop Rubber in the Erdington district of Birmingham, England. It was established in 1917 and by 1954, the entire factory area employed 10,000 workers. At one time it was the world's largest factory, when it employed 3,200 workers.

Fort Dunlop is a landmark building next to the M6 motorway, near to junction 5. It is a Grade A locally listed building. It was designed by Sidney Stott and W.W. Gibbings in the 1920s.

Not the most of exciting of rooftops ever, but definitely a different view of the city, and provided different perspectives of an area I've never been through other than street level.

Turkey et crew went up back in 2006 a few months before it reopened. HERE






Back towards the city centre.
